Away From the Office

That almost sounds like a new Fall line-up sitcom...but it's not!!  Rana and Jill will be going to China and away from the office until October 18th.  The Chamber office will still be open and the volunteers doing an amazing job of keeping things running smoothly.  If you need anything, they will get back to you as soon as they return.  In the meantime, you can contact the volunteers if you have any questions. 

Shee-shay (we were told that is thank you in Chinese!)

BC Goes Passionately Pink

The flyer is at the link below listing the fun events tied to this year's ribbon event!  Be sure to print out your pink lunch box order form and get everyone in your office to order.  Deliveries will be right before the annual picture on City Hall steps or you can pick them up at the event if you choose.

Be sure to get your shirt and hat so you can be a part of our super fun Human Ribbon sponsored by Century Link.  We want everyone to be in this picture, so be at City Hall at noon on the 29th!

Bikers, get your motors running and your helmets on, we're going to have a fun scavenger hunt with great prizes that evening at the Boulder Dam Brewing Company from 4pm to 6pm.  Register early that evening, as we only have 50 slots open in the bicycle category and 50 in the motorcycle category.



Chamber Shredding Day

If you've stored up more documents to shred after the Credit Union's successful document destruction event in April, then now is the time to get rid of that waste!

Thursday, October 28th from 9am to 12pm, the Chamber will host it's annual Fall Shredding Day sponsored by American Shredding and Albertson's.  Destruction is certified and FREE!!!

Please stop by and bring your paper recycling.  We will remain in the parking lot until noon, or until the truck fills up...whichever comes first! 

A big thank you to our partners that are allowing this much needed service to our community.

Are You Healthy? Well Come and See!

The Boulder City Hospital, the University of Southern Nevada and the Chamber have partnered to bring you the largest Health and Business Fair Boulder City has ever seen!!!

With over 60 booths showcasing health services, business services, events, and non-profit organizations, you'll want to plan on fasting on October 22nd after 6pm, and start your day, October 23rd, at the Fair getting your blood work done!  It is close to Halloween, after all.  The event runs from 8am to 12 pm.

This year, we will also have a fun new event called Cropping For Cancer.  Mrs. Kendra Wright has created a new non-profit in Boulder City that will be scrapbooking in honor of those who have fought, are fighting or lost the fight to cancer.  Proceeds from the registration fees for her event, will be donated to two local cancer fundraising events-BC Goes Passionately Pink and Boulder City's Relay for Life.  Join her, and join the fight!

Outside the front doors of the Rec Center, Operation Medicine Cabinet will be collecting old prescriptions and out-dated medicines for disposal.  So pull up alongside the curb and drop your drugs off to help keep a safe medicine cabinet and home!

The flyer is at the link below.


Advertising Opportunity

The Chamber is updating the kiosks in the Historic District and has added some advertising slots to the tear sheets that go along with them.  Please check out the link below and let the Chamber know if you're interested in any of the open advertising boxes on those sheets.  Sheets will be given to the hotels/motels,  to the retailers and to the restaurants in Boulder City for dispersement to guests.

Deadline for inclusion is October 21st.


Around Town

Republican Women~

Travis Barrick, candidate for Nevada Attorney General will speak at the luncheon meeting of Boulder City Republican Women on Thursday, October 21.  Barrick, a long time resident of Las Vegas, is an attorney, and considers his previous 20-year experience as a carpenter/contractor prior to studying law the advantage of a practical and business background that is essential to the role of Attorney General.

Early voting begins on October 16, and Boulder City voters will find 15 initiatives/questions on their ballot.  To assist members to understand these issues, legislative chair Linda Bronstein will discuss the pros and cons of each one. 

The meeting begins at 11:30 a.m. at Railroad Pass Banquet Room and reservations are required by October 14.  To reserve, call the BCRW hotline at 393-1228, or e-mail bcgop@yahoo.com

Cost of the luncheon is $20 including tax and tip, and all interested persons are invited.

Country Store~

Hear ye! Hear ye!

It's October, and in Boulder City that means Country Store returns for the 63rd year.  It is the event that features something for every age and for every use possible--from socks to sinks--and even great chili and hot dogs.  So mark your calendar for Friday, October 22, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturday, October 23, 8 a.m.-noon, and come to  Grace Community Church.  The church yard, Fox Hall, the church basement, the American Legion Hall and even the alley off Wyoming Street will be stacked with treasures at reasonable and sometimes giveaway prices. 

Co-chairs Jack Rants, Don Walker and Barbara Reed are still looking for a few good workers and, of course, choice merchandise.  If you have items to donate or want to help call Barbara Reed at 293-3997.

Support Cardboard City~

On November 19, 2010, St. Christopher's Episcopal Church, is sponsoring a "first" for Boulder City: Boulder City's Cardboard City in Broadbent Park. All funds raised from this event of sleeping overnight in a cardboard box will go toward the programs of Emergency Aid of Boulder City and Family Promise of Las Vegas.

Attached is a pledge form and a flyer about the event. Collect pledges and sleep overnight in the park in a cardboard box that you can decorate if you wish. You can also form a team and have members donate funds and the entire team can sleep overnight. It is your choice. Check in time is 5 p.m. We will have a "soup line" where folks can "dine" on hot dogs and burgers. There will be music and Michael Miele will do some singing. Then it's lights out. There will be a light breakfast in the morning, clean up and everyone is then off to their day's activities.

Please feel free to call me at 339-9082 if you have any questions or send me an e-mail. Jean Norman of St. Christopher's is also available to answer your questions.

We hope you will join in this event to help two wonderful organizations that are helping folks in our community. 




Help Stanna, Help the Troops

This letter is to Stanna Musick, a local Boulder City resident.  She is working so hard to make the lives of these men and women a little easier as they fight overseas.  Please contact her if you'd like to be a part.

This letter is to confirm that 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment is receiving care packages from you.  We greatly appreciate your willingness to send us the items enclosed in these boxes, as we are a Marine infantry battalion engaged in combat in Marjah, a very remote part of Afghanistan. 


There are very few resources available here in theater.  These boxes are a tremendous asset to our command and our personnel, since we also have no access to any PX or Commissary to get hygiene items and other needed supplies.


This information is to be sent to Chuck Higley  Commander  and Bob Garlow Post Quarter Master of VFW post 36, 1406 Monterey De. Boulder City, NV 89005.


Thank you once again for helping us take care of our Marines here in this tough environment.  If you need to contact me, I can be reached at david.mowbray@afg.usmc.mil.    


Semper Fi,
